LONDON (Sporting Alert) — Following the last round of the group stages on Wednesday night, these are the teams entering the Champions League round of the last 16 knock-out phase.
Heading the list of group winners are Manchester United, Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and Bayern Munich.
Amongst the teams going through as group runners-up are Arsenal, Real Madrid, AC Milan and Celtic.
